When I began designing the theme of my home, I wanted it to be clean, neutral and warm, thus, I thought stripes would play an important role is this concept. Stripes seems to have a classic simplicity to them and they are perfect for painting (I mean, compared to a mural), so I decided to have my go at it on my entry way wall. The width of the horizontal pattern I chose was rather thick, about 1.5 ft (I think the skinnier the stripes, the more casual the look= no good). This grey neutral is called “Pussywillow” by Sherwin Williams. Check out the before and after below!
